I was bullied, called ugly,etc, so I didn't feel that good about myself as a youth. I prayed on it, but I began to do things that made me feel good. Whether it was listening to Genesis, reading comics, working out, or playing video games, I did what enjoyed. From there, I wanted to be the best at everything, and that includes Poetry. If you do not believe in yourself, then what can you do? Nothing.
